Wedding Photography

Hello from Singularis Photography. I recently mentioned my training day with Bjorn Thomassen and the fact that I was a great admirer of his work. Well, I decided to go on a trip down to Cornwall for 3 days ¬†of ¬†mentoring, advice and training. Bjorn is a superb photographer, has been in the business over 25 years and is still passionate about what he does. It was a real pleasure to work with someone with this level of enthusiasm and the 3 days passed very quickly. I learnt technical skills and how he understands and uses light as well as an insight into the artistic side of his work. Just as important was the business and marketing advice, which is where many photographers fall short. You can be the best photographer in the world, but unless your work is seen by the right clients you are wasting your time. His idea’s about getting work noticed and having an effective website were fascinating and gave me plenty of food for thought. It’s a fact that with the easy access to digital camera’s it’s not difficult to take nice pictures. As a Portrait and Wedding Photographer in Horsham, my aim is to produce the highest quality work that I can and to aspire towards constant improvement. By acquiring knowledge, undertaking regular training and seeking inspiration from those I respect, I hope to show my clients that there is a difference between the fortunate amateur and those of us working towards these goals. So with that in mind here are a few pictures from my work with...

Family Photography – Horsham

Hello again, I recently worked with a friend and fellow photographer on a family and child themed shoot. Julie has a large extended family and wanted to record some photographs of her children and grandchildren. We were fortunate that we had a good working space and a lot of time to experiment and try different looks and props. The other advantage with having another photographer working with you is that you get to bounce idea’s of one another which sparks creativity and makes things interesting. Because of the number of potential subjects (20+) we used a simple white background. To keep things organised we also arranged time slots throughout the day, so that each family group had sufficient time to relax without feeling pressured. Although there were a few hiccups the plan kind of worked and we were able to experiment with different clothing for the children and a variety of sets to try. There are various schools of thought about sets and props. There is also a tendency with some photographers to buy from company’s that specifically produce items for child shoots. The danger with this of course is that you end up with something that is no different from anyone else. From my perspective I try to purchase items that are slightly different. This means I spend a lot of time in auctions as well as antique/craft shops and local fairs looking for interesting or quirky items that might compliment the model or just be a bit of fun. I have attached some of the results in the post.  ...
